Cinnamon Yogurt Dip
Cinnamon is said to be a great appetite suppressant and tastes great, too.

I made this dip for breakfast. I used a greek vanilla yogurt, I cut the cinnamon back to a scant teaspoon (was that a typo asking for a full tablespoon?) and I served it with homemade waffle sticks, sliced apples and chunked bananas. The kids ate every bite.Read More
W-A-A-A-Y too much cinnamon. I agree with the other reviewers, cut back to a "maximum" of 1 tsp or less to start and adjust according to your taste preference. Also, I think the dip's texture would be greatly enhanced by using vanilla Greek yogurt with a denser consistency, since this was a little on the runny side.Read More

Perfect recipe for a quick fruit dip! I got the task of making a fruit tray for my daughter's first grade class, and while most kids will eat fruit, I wanted to give them a slightly sweet tasty dip that didn't use confectioners sugar or whipped cream. So good. I used a half tbsp of cinnamon and local tangerine honey. It is being served with fresh pineapple, blueberries, seedless red grapes, kiwi and strawberries.
I used a cup of Fage greek yogurt, added a scant 1/8 tsp of vanilla extract, about one tbs of Stevia In The Raw (granulated like sugar), and a heaping tsp of cinnamon and it was nom-tastic. Used it for grapes and honeydew melon but it's great to eat straight like for a flavored breakfast yogurt (so long as you use a tsp and not a tbs of cinnamon). ;)
I was looking for a dip that would be similar to the one wendy's used to serve along with their sweet potato fries. This is not it. But it was still very good! It was a bit too much cinnamon for my tastes. I will tone it down the next time I make this. Thanks for sharing your recipe! :)
Really good and so easy. It's great along side sweet potato chips. It would make a great fruit dip as well. I'll definitely make this one again. I didn't have honey on hand, so I substituted about 3/4 the amount of agave. Next time I'd cut down the cinnamon a lot. I'm wondering if the recipe intended to call for a teaspoon rather than a tablespoon. It's still tasty, but all the cinnamon added a slightly weird texture.
Too much cinnamon? No way! This dip is packed with flavor, I'm just sad I didn't find this recipe a long time ago. I found this is great to make for parties, for a late night snack ('cause it satisfies my sweet tooth), a breakfast side, and best yet for my daughter lunch with apples! I made the recipe as written.
I was pleasantly surprised with this dip! I wanted something that was somewhat healthy on my appetizer table for Easter. I made this, using vanilla greek yogurt. Like most others, I cut the cinnamon to 1 tsp. only and that was plenty. I served this with strawberries, sliced apples, 'Nilla wafers, and graham crackers. Everyone loved it!
this was a nice way to dress up plain greek yogurt for me.. i reduced the cinnamon to 1 tsp as everyone else suggested.. i didn't feel the need to add the brown sugar.. but i'm not a big sweets person anyway.. i added just a bit of vanilla extract like faithchops.. bf said it was weird but in a tasty way.. i topped with slivered almonds.. so yummy.. wish i would have had granola.. ty for the recipe
backed off the cinnamon...otherwise was good
As written, I think the cinnamon would have been too much. Like others suggested, I cut it down to 1 teaspoon, and it was fabulous! It was a touch too sweet as well, so I may reduce the sugar/honey if I continue to use regular vanilla yogurt, although it would probably counter the greek yogurt's richness should I try that next time. Can't wait to experiment though! Never thought about putting these ingredients together but they were wonderful! :)
I really want to give this 5 stars but can't because of the amount of cinnamon called for. Surely, it's too much, and I love cinnamon! I cut the recipe in half and used only 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (should have been 1.5 tsp.) However, play with the amount to suit your own taste because this cinnamon yogurt dip is delicious on fruit and makes a wonderful snack or even healthy dessert for after dinner.
I agree with some of the other reviewers... a bit on the too cinnamony side for me. I didn't have Greek yogurt available so i did use normal yogurt. I think i would have preferred the texture of the Greek yogurt more. All that being said, it's a good recipe and one could manipulate it easily to your own taste buds.
If you follow this recipe with the amount of cinnamon, you totally have added way to much, as I found out. There is soo much cinnamon in such a small batch of dip, that we found our selves saying the dip was drying our palates. I made it twice and the 2nd batch at half the required amount of cinnamon...way way much better. And enjoyable.
The first time I made it per directions. My grandkids age 2 and 5 loved it with apples and animal crackers.
I like things sweet so I doubled the brown sugar and honey. It did not last long. Yum yum lol
I make this with plain Greek yogurt, omit the brown sugar and increase the honey to 3 tablespoons. ALWAYS gets rave reviews with a plate of fruit.
I loved this dip! I take it in my lunch every once in a while and I love it! For an extra healthy boost I used fat free yogurt with no added sugar and it tasted just as good. I added just a little bit more honey to thicken the dip. Overall, I really love this recipe!
As written this recipe would have to be a two star, maybe even the dreaded one star because the large amount of cinnamon would be inedible to me. I decreased the cinnamon by half (used a half tablespoon) and it was still overpowering and left an unpleasant "dry" feeling in my mouth. I should also perhaps mention I am an avid lover of cinnamon, but not like this! I think if I were to try this again, I would use only a teaspoon or so of cinnamon and also use greek yogurt as the regular kind was somewhat thin for a dip.
I followed this recipe to a tee. I thought there was too much of a cinnamon taste and would cut it back the next time. It also became very runny over time. I will cut the recipe in half next time and cut way back on the cinnamon.
I also used low fat Greek vanilla yogurt and cut the cinnamon down to a teaspoon. Very delicious and worked well with the apples, orange slices, red grapes and pineapple I served for a brunch.
Must be a typo - way too much cinnamon! Maybe a teaspoon or so.
Taste great! It pairs especially well with pineapple. When I bring it to parties, people ask what's the recipe! -1 star for 1 tablespoon cinnanom. Should be a teaspoon!
This tasted okay, but I won't be making it again. I thought it had a little too much cinnamon. But my main issue was how thin and sweet it was--too much honey and brown sugar.
I was looking to find a recipe like one I made years ago and have forgotten. This fit the bill, and it's really tasty. I might just drink it as a smoothie ;-)
Amazing! Used only about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and it was perfect.
I made this for a fruit tray that I took to a baby shower. It was a huge hit, and most people raved about the cinnamon in it. One of my friends said she would even consider sitting down with just a bowl and a spoon of it! I'll definitely be making this dip again.
